Question Answered: I NEED SUGESTIONS!!!

I was hoping to get a DSi pack with the 5 mario games that comes with it. And it's only $180 in Canada. Do you have a way to persuade my parents to get that for me for Christmas?

But seriously, it depends on what your parents are like, what kind of people they are. Have you ever people-watched? Analyze them, compare them to other people, that is, how they think and see things, then you'll find the best way to appeal to them And you just also might have fun learning about people too
For instance, with me, begging doesn't work, it's annoying. But sitting down and looking me in the eye and telling me that you want to tell me something, and then saying what it is you want, WHY you really want it, stating you will take care of it because you do realize it is expensive, and then asking what you can do to get it? Whether that is, like someone else said, doing extra chores, saving your own money to help pay for it, etc. Now that would not only butter them up, but probably make them cry (in a good way), and if they really can't afford it, they will tell you how you can help save for it, and if they can afford, they'll probably get it.
If you are willing to wait for it, and willing to work for it, that will show them you really want it. Taking care of the things you do get goes a very long way too.

Maybe offer to do extra housework, or get really good grades. Behave like an angel, and don't be too 'needy'. LOL

I ask one parent and make it seem like the other one said that it was a great idea. If you use your regular DS all the time then they will think a new DSI would be perfect. I told my dad how slow my cell phone was and how i couldn't get it turned on fast enough in an emegency. Next thing I knew i got a new cellphone the next day! HEHEHE this worked for me, you should say that it builds skill and your Ds is falling apart and you REALLY would like a new one and tell them the DSI is on sale.
your canadian, eh? i have been there.

You could get it on ebay. Or tell your parents that the DSI pack is the only thing you want. Or you could pay some and your parents can pay some. Hope this helps.

Don't you think I've tried begging? If I really cry they'll say "The more you cry, the less possibility I'm going to buy it for you."
